In Wahroonga NSW on “Demolition of 3 x single...” at 14 Neringah Avenue Sth, Wahroonga, NSW:

Phillip Bourne commented

I'm unsure of the motivation of the developers , but I suspect it's not for the amenity of local residences.
Whilst there is a need for some urban consolidation, the height of this development is completely out of step with other developments along the rail corridor of Ku-ring-gai Council.
Given the topography of the location, 5 storey development would have an overwhelming impact on heritage homes in that area. Recent developments in Coonabarabran Rd near the Post office seemed much more in-tune with the amenity of the area.
Additionally, traffic and parking in and around the particular area is congested enough at present without significant additional load this represents.
I have lived within 2kms of this site for over 40 Years and I'm opposed to the giddy pursuit of profit corrupting what is a quite and peaceful village community.
I believe this should be rejected by council and a more sympathetic development requested.
